2023 Agnew-Harrison

Sadly we have decided to cancel this year's Agnew-Harrison primarily due to lower than normal participation rate. We cannot in good conscience run a competitive event with the number of confirmed contestants. We will re-evaluate the viability of the contest in the years to come.

Pipers and Pipe Band Society of Ontario

The PPBSO — the Pipers’ and Pipe Band Society of Ontario — administers piping, drumming and pipe band contest at various highland games throughout Ontario. Several of these annual summer competitions have special designations, including the North American Championship, the Canadian Championship and the Ontario Championship.

The Niagara-Hamilton Branch is one of several local PPBSO branches throughout Ontario. We hold monthly meetings from October through April.

In addition to being a fun social gathering, our meetings provide opportunities to develop piping and drumming in our area.

We hold annual Amateur Competitions for amateur pipers and drummers.

We also hold the Livingstone InvitationalAgnew-Harrison Drumming Invitational, support the George Sherriff Memorial Invitational and The Highland Gala.
